Hiking the Appalachian Trail 2020 to raise awareness for Parkinson’s.

Lily Gearhart

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency. I’m one of thousands of people around the globe who are turning their passions into Team Fox fundraisers to help them speed a cure for Parkinson’s. When you give today, 100 percent of Team Fox proceeds go straight to MJFF research programs.

This is particularly important to me because my (step)dad was diagnosed with Parkinson’s several years ago. He is an incredible human being and was a pivotal contributor to the person I have become and still strive to be.

We are working to walk the entire Appalachian Trail in 2020 in an effort to bring awareness to Parkinson’s and the need for more research. Every donation, no matter the size, is important in reaching our goal.

Best - Lily
